Our next Music Monday features a sampling of songs covered by artists in a different tone. Attempting a cover can sometimes be lazy or just downright awful but every now and then it brings a new dimension to a tune you thought you already knew.
First up is an artist named the #1 best new solo artist of 2010 by Paste Magazine followed by a few other inde covers of songs you may be familiar with.
